In a work session it helps to just keep going. The mirror is set up in front of me so I can turn to that as other plates were drying. This method is so responsive because it's very much like drawing. First the plate was completely covered, then wiped to expose the head shape, then worked back in to. If I got too picky or precious (which I did once or twice), I would just wipe the whole passage out and draw back in......no long pauses for too much thought or fuss, but there was time for some self evaluation.
